Based in Toronto, but born in the small Ontario town of Lindsay, The Strumbellas are an alt-country/bluegrass band in the vein of Cuff the Duke, The Sadies and The Wilderness of Manitoba.

In February they released their first full-length My Father and the Hunter. They also have a 2009 EP to their credit.

Tonight, The Strumbellas are in town to play a show at the Exchange. To give you a sense of what they’re like, here’s video of the band in studio recording “The Bird That Follows Me”
